DWF Evaluation

Evaluation of the Dallas Women's Foundation Economic Security Initiative Projects

Dr. Tammy Leonard is the Dallas Women’s Foundations program evaluator for the Economic Security Initiative.  DWF has defined economic security along 3 dimensions:  Learn, Earn, Keep.  The evaluation strategy is to evaluate all programs along all three dimensions in order to capture both direct and indirect impacts.  Rather than evaluating individual programs, the project evaluates cohorts of programs in order to better understand best practices in terms of programmatic approaches as well as understanding what aspects of economic security might be most/least challenging to impact.

In this capacity, CARe researchers interact with an array of non-profit organizations funded through the Economic Security grants program.  To date these organizations include Catholic Charities of Dallas, Jewish Family Services of Dallas, Senior Citizens of Greater Dallas (Senior Source), Wings, Transformance, Boys and Girls Club of Collin County, Junior Achievement, and Girls Inc.
